Emmanuel Frimpong has said on Twitter that Arsenal should sign Leicester City defender Ben Chilwell.

Frimpong made the suggestion following Leicester’s 3-1 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur away from home at Wembley Stadium in London on Sunday afternoon.

The 22-year-old defender started the Premier League match and played for the entire 90 minutes.


The youngster played well for Leicester, as he combined nicely with his teammates Harvey Barnes and James Maddison and provided an option in attack.

Against Tottenham on Sunday, the left-back took four shots, had a pass accuracy of 70.7%, won three headers, and made five interceptions and three clearances, and played one key pass, according to WhoScored.

So far this season, the England international - who earns £65,000 per week as salary, according to Spotrac.com - has made 25 appearances in the Premier League for Leicester so far this season, providing two assists in the process, according to WhoScored.
